Sport and Accomplishments: Besides being a two time Leadville 100 champion Anton has created a name for himself around his trail style, (almost Forest Gump-esque hair) and minimalist attire. He often runs without a shirt and with very lightweight minimal running shoes. He ran his first marathon when he was twelve. During college and in his early 20s he often ran upwards of 200 miles a week. Krupicka is featured in the film Indulgence: 1000 Miles Under The Colorado Sky which chronicles his Summer 2007 training leading up to the Leadville Trail 100. He has won the Leadville 100 twice, the Miwok 100 the Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler the Collegiate Peaks 50 Miler, the White River 50 Miler twice (Set 2010 CR 6:25:29), the High Mountain 50k and the Estes Park Marathon.
